Reasons why I like living in Newark and Licking County..................

Reason #44: The Newark-Granville Symphony Orchestra

This evening my Sweetie and I went to the fabulous Midland Theatre to take in the final performance of the 2013-14 season of our local orchestra.  It is a great group of talented musicians ably conducted by Timothy Weiss.  They were in fine form.  The highlight of the evening was the piano playing of Granville's own Gavin George.  Gavin, now eleven years old, played Mendelssohn's Piano Concerto No. 1.  A standing ovation spontaneously erupted when he finished.  Amazing talent.  The video below, from 2012, is Gavin playing with the Newark-Granville Symphony.  If you want to hear him play Mendelssohn, go here.
